description

This large-scale project takes place in a 40 m long interiour of a cargo ship. This ship provides a basis for an interactive environment in the form of a light and sound installation for the luminale 2012. Our concept “flowcean”, showing a wave structure, won the second stage of our internal competition in December 2011.
Inspired by the marine phosphorescence, we created a light-flow which sprawls as a refracted sea wave over the visitors. The wave glows and jingles. Moreover, the impression of the space enables the visitors to influence the wave actively. Through a system of conductive sewing threads the touch can be measured and transformed into a signal for light and sound. The visitor can dive the wave and can change the perception of the room by his/her interaction with light and sound. The wave rambles from the one side to the other and refracts at the end of the steel framework.

In Cooperation with Navina Groß & Janina Rausch
